Extreme Skiing Challenge - The Smugglers' Notch Ski and Snowboard Club will host the 2014 Smugglers' Notch Extreme Skiing Challenge Ė an opportunity for junior and adult freeskiers to show their stuff on some of the most difficult terrain Smugglers' Notch has to offer! The course is planned for the Madonna headwall, an ungroomed steep with a double fall line descent filled with cliffs, bumps, trees, chutes, and stumps. Competitors will be judged on line, control, fluidity, technique and style.

As the competitors run the course on the headwall from just below Catwalk to just above Madonna midstation, the best seats in the house for watching the excitement will be on the Madonna summit lift. Spectators also can view from a roped off area at the Red Fox Glades near the finish area at the base of the Madonna headwall, easily accessed from midstation.

$45 entry fee (includes t-shirt) and $29 lift ticket available. The field will be capped at 100 competitors.
